Module overview

Many of our postgraduate students teach their subjects and pass on their knowledge to their peers and to students with no formal training. Using recognised pedagogical methods, this module offers you the knowledge and expertise to enable you to design, deliver, assess and evaluate teaching sessions for your colleagues, your students and your patients. The module will also enhance your ability to critically reflect and improve on your educational activities and teaching practice. Our module is accredited by the Advance HE, formerly the Higher Education Academy (HEA), and during this module, you will engage with the Professional Standards Framework (PSF) and work towards achieving Associate Fellowship of the HEA. This fellowship is recognition of the professional standing of your teaching practice and is internationally recognised and valued by Universities and across the HE sector, as a measure of your expertise and accomplishment.

Our online module is delivered using a blend of live teaching and pre-recorded sessions. You are expected to attend all live sessions which allows you to engage with our expert teachers and your fellow students and benefit from rich discussions. Interactive groupwork in our live sessions will allow you to explore designing a teaching session in a supported environment. Our recorded sessions allow you to learn at your convenience within each teaching week. Most of our students continue to work while studying and benefit from this flexibility. Engaging with our blended learning each teaching week allows you to build on and synthesise your learning as you go.

This module is taught once a year and typically involves approximately 10 hours of student engagement per week. The module will take place during the following weeks (exact timetable to be confirmed):

  • Teaching & guided learning: 28/01-13/03/25
  • Self-directed learning: 14/03-30/04/25
